About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 6

You'll love relaxing at our charming yet spacious home after visiting area colleges, museums, historic sites, and all the other great things Boston has to offer. We're located steps from public transportation, and also an easy drive to the Back Bay, medical area, or downtown. Our quiet, tree-lined street is safe and within walking distance of several restaurants, stores and a playground.

The first floor has a well-equipped modern kitchen that opens onto a family room with large screen HD TV, a dining room with seating for six, and a large living room with fireplace. There's also a deck with grill and grassy area out back for the kids to play. A half-bath is also located on the first floor.

There are three large bedrooms on the second floor, two with queen beds, one with a full size bunk with a twin on top. There is a renovated, full bath with tub and shower on the second floor.

The house is located on the Brookline/ West Roxbury border with easy access to the Green and Orange MBTA lines. We're also within walking distance of the commuter rail, which gets you into BackBay or downtown within 30 minutes. We're a 10 minute drive from Boston College, 15 minutes from the Longwood medical area, and 30 minutes from Logan Airport. While convenient to Boston's historic, cultural and shopping sites, the house also is close to several beautiful parks where you can bike, walk or hike. These include the Arnold Arboretum, Larz Anderson, and the Blue Hills.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent this Christmas with our married children in this lovely home. It was truly perfect for the six of us.

The house was clean and welcoming. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. My family loves to cook and we found all the pots, pans and utensils we needed to make some wonderful meals. Donna left us a nice bottle of wine which we also enjoyed - lovely touch.

The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. We also had plenty of linen. The listing description and pictures were accurate.

We were able to spend some quality family time and we felt right at home. We had the pleasure of meeting Donna and her husband who were the most gracious hosts.

We all agreed that we would love to stay here again should our travels bring us back and I would recommend it to my family and friends.

Beautiful

The home is lovely. The owner has even taken great care to make sure everything you could need is there. There was a travel coffee mug and even an umbrella for use. The location is safe and quiet.

Great stay in Boston!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this comfortable and roomy home just outside Boston. It was very convenient to the city We rented a car but could have Taxi-ed or Uber-ed for around the same money. The beds were comfortable. The kids loved the bunk beds. The kitchen and family area was very nice. Donna even left a nice bottle of wine for us upon our arrival. Highly recommend this house and will stay there again if we go back!

Wonderfully comfortable home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The was the perfect house for us. With five adults, there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen area was perfect with the attached family room and breakfast bar. We all were able to hang out and visit comfortably. The little touches Donna provided were perfect; down to a welcome bottle of wine. We enjoyed being able to make dinner and share time around the big dining table. We had everything we needed for an easy stay. The beds were comfortable with nice linens and plenty of towels for everyone. I would recommend this property! Next time we are back in the Boston area, this is the first place I will stay. Thank you Donna for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home.

Map

Car: recommended

The best of both worlds - close proximity to all Boston has to offer without the noise and parking hassles of downtown. We're located on a quiet, tree-lined street with plenty of free parking. BC, Fenway Park, Boston Children's Hospital and other hospitals in the Boston Medical Area are all within 5 miles of the house. Easy access to public transportation (both the subway and the commuter rail), Routes 9, 128 and the Mass Pike, enables you to easily explore all the great sights in the city as well as in the surrounding area.
